This ode to the ladies is the fourth single by American rapper Flo Rida, from his sophomore album, R.O.O.T.S..
This smooth ballad features American R&B singer-songwriter Ne-Yo.
The song was produced by the Norwegian production team StarGate, who are Mikkel S. Eriksen and Erik Hermansen. They have produced and co-written many other hits including Ne-Yo's breakthrough chart-topper So Sick."
Some fans have queried if this song was inspired by the Will Ferrell movie Anchorman, which includes the line: "I'm going to throw something out and if you don't like it, you just send it right back... I want to be on you... wait, wait...I want to be on you..."
"What's Up" by 4 Non Blondes has endured as one of the most popular songs of the '90s, but it wasn't a huge hit at the time and the band split after one album. Frontwoman Linda Perry went on to write hits for Pink and Christina Aguilera.
